I seriously hope the dlc show more of her, because she is a good character that would have been great if she was not set to do a task. It is like Shakesprea, he always had a charcater that could be a play in their own right, that dies.

Yeah they become antagonists sure but they were cast in a positive light until well into the actual revolution in Columbia. Sadly Daisy Fitzroy just couldn't handle a certain martyr coming back from the dead. That . . . and vengeance is a powerful motivator.

Ya know, I've been thinking about Daisy ever since her part in the story was over. I feel like the little we knew of Daisy up until that point made her seem like the one sane chicken wing in a bucket of Colonel's extra Crazy, but then all the universe jumping happened and daisy suddenly quit being a voice for the downtrodden, to a child murdering psychopath. I feel like this was jut really sudden and didn't make a lot of sense for her character. But then I finished the game and found out about Booker and his being from another universe where his character didn't go insane. I wonder if it was the same with Daisy? Was the third universe Daisy the product of some life altering decision? Would she have ended up using a different approach to her revolution had we remained in the first or second? And what happened to the Daisy in Booker's universe? I feel like we only really got to see Comstock's origin while Daisy just sort of got written off as a maniac after her ending. I'd really like to know a lot more about her.

I gotta disagree. You may think it's out of character for revolutionaries to go insane, but if you want to see a real world situation on how it all goes wrong, just look at Robespierre and the French revolution. Not only that, killing the children of your enemies really isn't all that uncommon, it has happened all throughout history.

Agreed, but I feel they did the same to Comstock as well. I mean why does Comstock have to be racist/bigoted, and don't start with the "oh but that's what the times were like", argument.

First of all if that is the case, then what's the point of having that? Do we need this game to give us some morale lesson on why racism is bad (I was under the impression that was self-evident)?

Second of all, it seems to hardly matter to the overall story of the game. They could have just as well not have had it even though that surely would have made things in the game less chaotic.

Instead we got this white racist/bigoted male zealot that wants to usher in the apocalypse on one side (...and why does he want that? Just to fulfill some prophecy he may just as well have made up) and on the other a black anarchist/socialist minded female that pretty much wants to exterminate all the "founders". I mean the whole point of extremism being bad is just a joke in this game.

Shadow10hunter Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2013
I feel like you're missing a lot on the nuances in the game. Comstock in never shown to not be a racist, in fact, it's totally up to the player to choose one way or the other. I lot of people also seem to be forgetting that Booker did a lot of really horrible stuff before the point in which he splits, in the universe in which he becomes Comstock he justifies all of this under the pretext that it was God's will, and I think he believes that continuing what he started in wounded knee is an extension of God's will.

Next, the game isn't trying to give you a "moral lesson" on racism, the whole point of columbia is that it is the embodiment of american exceptionalism. Just like Rapture was based off of objectivism, columbia is merely a picture of american exceptionalism taken to an extreme. In fact, this really ties in to the first point I made as well, the whole goal of american exceptionalism was to "civilize" the... less fortunate. As such, Comstock's goal was not to destroy the world, but to remake it in America's image, and he believed that America had abandoned it's ideals, which is why he attacks it and burns down New York.

Finally the "black anarchist/socialist".... Well, aside from the fact that Daisy is neither of those, she is just angry angry angry. It is never revealed what she planned to do after the revolution, and I don't even think she had a plan. The entire point of that is simply that angry and abused people do thoughtless and hateful things. I could go on, in fact I'm probably going to write a research paper on this next year, but if you want to see a real world parallel to this see French Revolution.

1) I'll just say you are right that I am missing some of the nuances in the game. I did so more in jest in trying point out why in particular the extremism shown in the game just doesn't work well for me. Again lets go back to Comstock. First of all I don't see how or why in the game Comstock has to racist/bigoted. I mean why? Because he thinks anyone one aren't WASPs (I think you will know what that is) are inferior? Okay, but what purpose does that hold in the game other than to show he's extreme? This is why I bring up the "moral lesson" and the "I don't want to hear that that's what the times were like" comments. What's the point?

2) Personally I really don't think they did a good job accurately characterizing objectivism in Rapture (not that I would expect such from a video game anyway), so I find it hard to see how the game (BioShock 1 that is ) was any real critique on that.

3) I don't see how Columbia is the embodiment of American exceptionalism or even how that has much to do with the game. In fact, with due respect, I don't think Mr. Levine got that idea right at all in this game (yes perhaps in regards to some documentary he said he watched concerning what McKinley said about "civilizing the Philippines", but I don't see how that translates well at all in this game). The point of building Columbia was to show off to the rest of the world how far we've come and maybe how far we might go. Also I would say that the idea of trying to "civilize" other people is really a stretch from the above concept (but that I guess is the point). Personally, I just don't see why they didn't just make Comstock out to be someone that simply had a completely negative view on the whole human race (well that is sort of still the case). Wouldn't it have been better to have it that Comstock saw the future or some alternate reality where humanity destroyed itself but was offered a way to prevent such if only he could make Elizabeth reign over the world?

4) Yes, you are right about Daisy. In fact, I commented somewhere else that she really doesn't seem to be like I characterized her but more like somebody that just carries that banner and gives that sort of rhetoric (she did I believe in one Voxophone suggested this. That she had a mouth or a voice). Yes, it isn't revelaed what she had in mind afterwards (one of things which I find does no justice for her character or place in the game). Yes, people abused and oppressed sometimes become the abusers and the oppressors (In fact, as you wisely mentioned the French Revolution, there is a quote by Napoleon where he said something to the effect "among those who dislike oppression are many who like to oppress").

5) My overall problem is what does the extremities really have to do with the game? The whole game is about Booker and the consequences of the choices he's made in his life. Why was it really necessary to have racism added to the game then (and no, just to say I don't believe that Booker is such)? I admit not having such would pretty much take away much of the game, but this part of the game doesn't seem to fit the overall point.

6) I do hope you write a paper on the French Revolution or perhaps the Bolshevik Revolution. I have read some books on both, in fact, I'd go so far as to advise you to stay away from one book concering the former, that is, a book by the author Simon Schama. I particularly hated that book because it did so little about actually talking about the events of the French Revolution.

Well, that's all for now, I think I said a mouthful.

First, On Comstock. I feel like they leave a lot about Comstock intentionally vague because of the ending of the game, so as to the whole racism thing, let me try to put forth a couple theories dedicated only to him. When exploring who he is, you really have to look Booker though, because we get a lot more information about him than we do about Comstock. So the earliest event that we know of is the Battle of Wounded Knee. Booker is obviously not proud of what he did there, I think the term "haunted" would actually be very appropriate. He's so distraught that he even tries to ask for God's forgiveness, but refuses, for reasons that are unclear. And this is where Comstock is born. Rather than refuse the forgiveness that is offered, he accepts it, which in a way means that he believes what he has done is pardonable. I think this is a very important point to recognize, especially when you're looking at the Hall of Heroes section of the game, because he doesn't only believe that what he does was pardonable, but actually something to be enshrined. So let's think back, what WAS the actual battle of wounded knee about? Well, it was basically part of the continued white expansion into territory that had previously been set aside for the indians as their own. But when you get right down to it, it was really just a massacre, pointless violence that resulted in the loss of life of men, women, and children. And we know Comstock wasn't born till the baptism, which means that both Comstock and Booker felt guilty about what had happened, which means they couldn't just justify it as another conquest of "white power". So what can we infer from all this? Well for one, I think you're right, Booker wasn't a racist, he obviously believed that what had happened at wounded knee was a massacre of human beings, not of some lesser race. Also, when Elizabeth asks why there are separate bathrooms for whites and blacks, he doesn't answer with: "Well, because they're inferior!" However, I think when it comes to anything with Booker, the only real way to describe him as is "dead inside" and the only thing that really causes him to return from the emotional stasis he had been stuck in is Elizabeth, which I think you can sort of draw a connection between Elizabeth "baptizing" him in the end, and Elizabeth being the only thing that can save him. So, while I don't think Booker is really a racist, I also doing think that he could actually bring himself to care one way or another at the beginning of the game. Hence why the player is allowed to choose who to throw the baseball at, because it's not really a choice, Booker simply doesn't care.

But enough about Booker, let's talk about Comstock. Unlike Booker, he accepts the baptism, and I think it turn he also fully accepts that people who are not "WASP" (as you put it :p) are subhuman, because that's really the only way you could rationalize what happened at Wounded Knee. So if you look at it in that context, the things that Comstock does start making sense. He glorifies what he did at Wounded Knee as not a massacre, but another victory in an never ending chain of white conquests, he sees the Boxer Rebellion as giant middle finger, and hence the actions he takes to suppress it. One thing that I'm wondering about Comstock though is this: I think somewhere in the back of his mind, he knows that everyone is equal, and that a lot of what he is doing is just to prove to himself that non-white people truly are "inferior". I don't know if you found this, but on one of the voxaphones, Comstock talks about how he killed all the indians to prove that he didn't have any "bad apples" in his family tree. Also, I don't know if you're familiar with this, but in psychology there is a defense mechanism known as "projection" whereby you project the undesirable traits in yourself onto others, and I think this is basically what Comstock is doing: He demonizes both non-white people and sympathizers because he doesn't want to accept that they could be people/right. And the more horrible things he does to them, the more he feels the need to justify himself, and so on.

Ugh. I'm not even sure if you're going to read all this, so I'll just stop there for now :P

I got much of that, but my problems remain the same. That is simply why? I mean how old was Booker/Comstock supposed to be by Wounded Knee? In their late teens? I know Comstock killed those Indians there because he had what was it "some teepees" in his lineage, but again why? He killed a couple of people because he didn't like being laughed at? This is what I mean about why I'm not big on the "extremism" in the game. If they had perhaps gone with something simpler and broader as in Comstock simply having a very dark and negative opinion about human nature, that would have probably worked for me.

All I'm trying to point out is what does and doesn't work for me in this game, and the motivations and malevolence of Comstock and Daisy just don't work well for me. It's no where near as good as Andrew Ryan and Fontaine/Atlas or even Sophia Lamb. Like I may have said before here or elsewhere, this game is really about Booker and that's it (Elizabeth I would say only serves as a guide for him).

Also I'm not sure if I said Booker was a racist or something. Not sure where you going with that though I do agree with what you said. I think that aptly sums him up.

you have left something else about bioshock, and it something it repeat, is the fact that as time goes the idiologie become less "this is about my ideas" and more "this is about me"

Just look ryan, in the end he become a petty tyrant who just want to win and it was willing to blow off his own city just he can prove he was right, he sacrifice his life to get the last laught

Look now lamb, she pretty much thorw rapture at delta without care, all because the greater good but she was to much of a coward to risk herself

and you have comstock and fitzroy, the first one made a religious cult about himself so he can feel better about everything he did, and daisy just want to see columbia burn to the ground

So in the end they are all people who belive in something and then use that to cover up his ego,fears and angers, things that of course will bring everyones down with them

It was out of character for her because they were in an alternative universe - in that same universe Booker had become a martyr for the cause when in the 'first' world he didn't want to get involved and just wanted to leave ASAP. All of these universes are affected by choices, so who knows what Daisy decided to end up how she did?
It would be cool to know what happened to the 'original' Daisy, though a possibility is that she's dead from a result of her alternate self dying, or isn't doing so great cause Booker never got back to her with the weapons.

And this picture is great, her stare is so defiant <3
